READERS:

1) How do these simple and profound truths relate to you?

2)  How can you make sure that you stay in control of your passions so that you can reach your dreams?

I think it’s time for you,

Imageto get off the computer for a little bit!  Go for a walk, go do a load of laundry, go volunteer at a nursing home, go call your sister, go read your scriptures, go plan your week.  And the list goes on, and on.

Seriously folks, we are TOO ONLINE these days!  I very much appreciate that you read my blog, but the OUTERnet can be even better than the INTERnet.

Lyrics here

I love this song of Mr. Paisley‘s.

It is a PERFECT satire of this social problem

(although there is the teensiest bit of mild lyrical innuendo)

And Elder David A Bednar of the LDS Church warns of this ubiquitous problem

of assuming fake identities on the internet.

CLICK HERE for that talk (and my sweet thoughts on it) that is insanely awesome

Screen shot 2013-09-16 at 9.35.20 AM

But back to Ms. Wilkinson’s main point (bookending!)

Screen shot 2013-09-16 at 9.32.46 AM

I love you all (platonically and literally),

but right now I think it would be oh! so wise

to go attend to the matters of real life, know what I mean?

So now skedaddle!  GO DO SOMETHING!

But I’ll see ya back here eventually, right?

And now I’m about to say something that

I often wish I could shout fiddle from the rooftops.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.47.21 PM

Are you listening?

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.48.55 PM

Okay, here I go:

 

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.50.32 PM

“I DON’T ANSWER TO ANYBODY,

AND IT’S A LOVELY, LOVELY FEELING!”

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 6.58.24 AM

There are of course limits to this philosophy, because I do represent Christ,

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 8.03.04 PM

I believe that women can be sexy,

but also ought to maintain class and (line of) propriety,

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.52.10 PM

and also I am a role model.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.33.13 PM

But still “I do what I want!”

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.41.13 PM

Katherine, get back to John Mayer…

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.42.17 PM

Read more here about the concert that LITERALLY(!) changed my life…

(more to come on Johnny’s brilliant monologue/idea)

And now Lightn’ing strikes for that thunderbolt of blasphemy

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.38.39 PM

for comparing myself to one of the greatest guitarists/poets of all time…

But allow me to quote from him once again:

“I LOOK GOOD CUZ I FEEL GOOD!”

4 John Mayer lyrics/links/quotations in one post.  Excellent job, sweet self…

Oh, yah, not only do KW and JM share fashion blunders, we also share writing blunders.  Check it out here. 

PS.  Even if your outfits are occasionally a little whacky, you can still be as cool as me.

“It’s true.  It’s true.  I choose you! (says Sara Bareilles). 

To have an awesome day!

Now GO!

Go fall in love.

Go change the world.

Go help an old lady move.

Go help her carry her groceries.

Go clean your car, (that’s what I need to do).

I need to go do my hair, and a few other things…

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 8.09.50 PM

I.  Choose.  You.

Although I am a fan of Sutton Foster,

when it comes to this blog, anything does NOT go.  The LDS writer Joanna Brooks has made me think about this and it’s implications regarding that golden line of propriety.  She has a policy of “Anything Goes” when it comes to comments on her blog posts, but I have firmly chosen required approval for mine.  But let’s get away from talking comments because I don’t really have a ton  (yet) anyways 🙂  I will not feature any experience/person/picture/video on this blog.  Again, I run the risk of coming across as self-righteous, but that’s alright because I like running AND I like risks.  And I also know that while I’m not perfect, I do my very best to not judge others while still holding true to my own convictions.  So while I respect Joanna as a human, Mormon, AND woman (just like me!), I differ from her in this regard, and in many others as well.

But there are a LOT of things I do wish to feature on my blog.  And many, many good things already in the works.  Stay tuned!
